An Earby-based herbalist has held a launch party to celebrate her using the Old Grammar School as her base for her practice from where she will sell her range of Pendle Herbal Teas.

On the 18th March, Danielle Kay was joined at the event by numerous fellow therapists and craft makers - including sound healing, crystal healing, Reiki, willow weaving, herb planting, and Yoga.

Food was provided by Craig Worrall of Edible Leeds, with his range of vegetarian forage foods on offer, and which proved to be very popular despite some initial scepticism, with everyone enjoying a lovely lunch.

Trustees of the Robert Windle Foundation were also on hand to give information about the school building and their educational charity, with a spokesperson saying: “It was [great] to see so many people in the building with many lovely comments about how beautiful it was and what an amazing day out they had”.

The event was opened by the Mayor Rosemary Carroll and Mayoress Carol Belshaw-Goulthorp and was very well attended by over 200 people. Later in the afternoon Mrs. Bead, who shares the upstairs space with Danielle, gave visitors a chance to make a dream catcher, which - as always - proved very popular.

The event was enjoyed by all the therapists and visitors so much so that there may well be another event next spring. Meanwhile, it is hoped to hold other events during the year which will allow people to sample new ideas and crafts.
